DC Comics unveiled a brand new logo to coincide with big Rebirth event this summer, which pretty much looks like a mea culpa for that New 52 stuff from a few years ago. The comic is an 80-page one-shot written by Geoff Johns that will kick off a company-wide reboot/relaunch. It hits stands on May 25th.
This new logo will be seen across all DC properties, including their comics, their shows, their live-action films, their animated films, their breakfast cereals, their flamethowers, and their talking Yogurt from Spaceballs dolls. That means Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will have the old DC logo, while Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, and other DC movies in the future will have this new logo. (At least until the 2019 logo reboot.)
I’m a bit old-fashioned and love the 1976 bullet logo the best, and I find this new logo really bland overall. At least the 2005 swirl had personality. This looks rigid and stodgy, like something for a corporate summer softball league rather than one of the world’s most important comic book companies. I’m still surprised how simple yet effective that mighty modern Marvel font and no-frills logo has proven over the years.
